I need to work from home, but I will give as much or more than on-site employees do. I will cherish every deadline, and submit the most perfect copy possible. Let me surprise you with my level of performance.

Service Description

Every kind of creative writing you can imagine, from short stories to biographies to business profiles to web copy to item descriptions for catalogs. If it involves words, I can put it together for you in a very pleasing final form.

All kinds of proofreading and editing work, including the dreaded line-by-line comparison proofreading (which I actually enjoy). As a compulsive proofreader, I find typos everywhere, from books to billboards.
